Is your child bilingual? Why don't you offer him or her the opportunity to pass the internationally recognised International GCSE (IGCSE) exam? 

The GCSE is the British national education exam for all secondary school pupils in the UK. Having an IGCSE is one of the keys that will opens doors to universities and international organisations for your child. 

Teens preparing with the world's English experts will:

  • develop the ability to communicate clearly, accurately and effectively in both spoken and written language
  • learn how to use a wide-ranging vocabulary, use correct grammar, spelling and punctuation, and develop a personal style and an awareness of the audience being addressed
  • be encouraged to read extensively, both for their own enjoyment and to further the ways in which English is used.

Who is IGCSE for ?

Our First Language English IGCSE curriculum is for learners whose first language is English. It is a two-year programme starting in troisième and finishing in seconde. 


What is IGCSE?

The IGCSE was created for and tailored to a multi–cultural, multi–lingual audience in a way that UK GCSE examinations are not, yet it is fully aligned to the standards of the UK GCSE. 

Our programme develops essential lifelong skills in both an English-speaking and a broader international context, including creative thinking and problem-solving, as well as more general analysis and communication skills such as synthesis, inference, and the ability to order facts and present opinions effectively. It also helps learners to:

  • develop the ability to communicate clearly, accurately and effectively when speaking and writing,
  • learn how to select and use a wide range of vocabulary, and the correct grammar, spelling and punctuation,
  • develop a personal style and an awareness of the audience being addressed.
